I’ve already been on X-Factor 2010 and the Best Rock Americana Album 2016 from The Akamedia and now I want to play more than just clubs and Bahai centers,” explained Richard Smith today. “I’ve been writing since I was a teenager and have been fortunate enough to work with the Australian ''Giant' musician Charli Holoubek and his band—they recorded my songs!”

Fans can hear examples of his music on CDBaby, where the songs Story, Party, Story, Persian Love I Need Love, Blue Moon, What A wonderful World, I Got The Power which were already released. Although Smith dreams of touring the world, he is also seeking more distribution throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada via radio and magazines.

The Akademia:


What a Wonderful World

I see trees of green
Red roses, too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, "what a wonderful world"

I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed day the dark sacred night
And I think to myself, "what a wonderful world"

The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying, "how do you do"
They're really saying "I love you"

I hear babies cry
Watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself, "what a wonderful world"
And I think to myself, "what a wonderful world"
